@TBGDN Leon,

Did you add the tags for each plant in this photo? I don't see them, so maybe you didn't add them for this one.

Love the photo! What a wonderful place to be, especially at this time of the year!

Hi Marilyn-
The thread "Autumn Trees And Country Roads" in Landscape Photo #7202
Also I added some tag boxes into the picture. Thanks for your sharp eye & also your very
generous acorns! (and thumbs too)

You're welcomed!

I love your wonderful avatar photo! Did you submit that as a Landscape Photo and is it in Brown County State Park, IN?

Hi Marilyn-
No, that picture is less than 15 miles from my home in rural Miami County. We are a farming community with lots of farm land and trees scattered here and there. That avatar photo is on the Mississinewa River a tributary of the fabled Wabash which is even closer to my home. We are rich in native American history here and still have the descendants of the Miami Nation of Indians headquartered here in Peru, Indiana (about 15 miles from my home). My wife's grandfather (on her Mom's side) was a part of that tribe several generations descended. I had written a blog post about him once, but deleted it later for lack of interest. I personally, am from northern Indiana, Lagrange County where there is one of the largest Amish communities in the state.

I am attaching another photo on the same river as in the Avatar at a spot near to the Wabash River where the two meet. It is by some accounts a sacred spot where the Miami Nation gathered in the 1700-1800's for tribal councils. Also there is a link to the Miami Indian website that might interest you. (By the way part of this tribe came from the Miami, Ohio area too. http://www.ohiohistorycentral....

Our group here is not federally recognized by the U.S. Government, but the Oklahoma one is. (Personal thought: "I strongly feel the US government cheated many native Americans out of their land and homes.") Miami County, Indiana: http://www.miamiindians.org/

Well I've put my foot into a very interesting subject, and I do not have all the answers, but I do have compassion for these people. Sorry to have strayed off the subject of pictures. *Blush*

This is the site of the Indian councils so long ago.
It is relatively untouched.

Leon,

Very beautiful photo! Interesting about the Miami Nation of Indians.

Decades ago, I grew up and lived in the Greater Dayton, OH area and lived in the Greater Cincinnati, OH area decades ago. I'm native to OH and lived there for 40 years, before moving down to northern KY where I met and married my husband, who isn't native to KY, but a transplant like myself.

I recognize the Great Miami River, the Little Miami River and the Miami Valley but didn't know (or remember) they were named for the Miami Nation of Indians til now. *Blush*

(Personal thought: "I strongly feel the US government cheated many native Americans out of their land and homes.") I agree.

Many years ago we took our kids to King's Island amusement park every summer as a mini-vacation. (And the Cincinnati Zoo also.) One of our greatest mini-vacations was to spend an entire day at Wright-Patterson AFB near Dayton. The kids (and I also) loved it! Ohio has so many wonderful sites including Neil Armstrong's home and not to leave out John Glenn! This was a great escape for vacation & very educational! Sorry to get off topic! *Blush* D'Oh!
